Brownish and transparent colour, small lasting off-white head. No doubt it’s a pale ale, but it seems to be relatively modestly hopped. Aroma includes biscuits, finish is a little sweet. A more than decent alternative to your Mexican lager. Nothing special but not bad.

This is a very mild pale ale, looks good (lacks carbonation) smells sweet like molases and tastes bitter enough. Drinkable mexican beer but nothing great.

A decent English Pale Ale, although find it hard to consider 6%ABV listed as a "mild".

Hazy orange/red amber with little head. Limited aroma with some malt presence. Not as complex or well-rounded a taste profile as I'd hoped after sampling other (excellent) Minerva offerings.

Malt flavours and graininess present, but a thin & bitter finish. Lacking the sweet caramelization I associate with British pale ales or the hop-focus in aroma and finish I love in the American versions.

Glad Minerva offers something outside of the standard macro-lager fare, but this Pale Ale is definitely not up to the caliber of their Stout.

Amber color with a one finger off-white head with medium retention.
Aroma with notes of papaya, bread, biscuit and some spices.
Flavor with notes of papaya, spices, mild cocoa, herbal and earthy hops, biscuit malt, caramel and a mild grapefruit citrusy. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Decent average English Pale Ale, well-crafted and balanced.
